These photorealistic portraits are captivating.
The artist’s chosen medium? Wool.
Caycee explained why she moved away from paint:
I was pregnant with my daughter and knew I could no longer be around all the turpentine and varnish and so began investigating other possible mediums for my work. After experimenting all summer with a variety of new materials, I came up with nothing. I kept thinking back to a crewel embroidery piece that I had made as a child and wondered if it would be possible to sew a portrait…or perhaps use the material in a more modern way.
